A new computer in the near future.

This is show off post, I have recently come to some money, and I want to tell you all about it.

I made a list, with some links to edbpriser.dk an online hardware site where you can compare prices in Denmark.

Mainboard
Processor
Graffic card
PSU
RAM
CD/DVD
HDD

Anti Noice

I'm the anti noice a try.



Add them up and it would like this:

The computer isn't ordered yet, so changes can be made.

The Core2 Q6600 is a damn good chip, if you're getting a nice price (I don't do stuff in kroner :) ). Also, the GTS
is not that much faster than the 8800GT 512, and the GT is a lot cheaper here, so I would go for that if that's also the case in Denmark. I didn't see any RAM specs, but know that XP and Vista 32-bit can't handle anything above 2 GB (I have 2 GB).

Any nForce chipset will probably contain 4 RAM slots, so it's easy to upgrade though, if 64-bit is the future. Before you make your final buy, I would stil read a few reviews from TomsHardware etc. where they pit different processors and graphics cards against each other, and then come to a conclusion based on price and quality. For example, it's possible that an AMD Phenom now outclasses the Q6600 because of a better price/quality ratio, because AMD has had to lower it's prices just to stay competitive. Although, Intel has been making some really top notch stuff, so I just don't know.

A new computer will probably stay with you for a while, so don't rush the desicion, learn all about the parts you can and don't overinvest, that money could also be used for better purposes (a savings account). I have an AMD 5600+ with a geforce 8600GT, it runs Far Cry on Ultra @ 1680 * 1050 (I have a 22" screen). Everything starts up before I can blink my eye (except for windows itself :D ).

Anyway, it's your decision, go for it and have lots of fun with that thing :D

From the screen seems to be good computer, processor rox, graphix not bad. Maybe you'll just upgrading a RAM and HDD in a far future. Anyway, I'm sure it will stay with ya for a while... good choice.

I must admit I didn't buy that computer after all, I changed it a bit.

Plus I have a SAS HDD (Seriel Attached SCSI) on my desk, and I can't remember the size of it.
Plus I have a lot of anti noice, on the floor somewhere.
